Australia: Adbri says that it expects growth in domestic cement demand to continue beyond a present residential construction boom. The Australian Financial Review newspaper has reported that Adbri chief executive Nick Miller believes that house building has undergone a nationwide ‘pull-forward’ in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. The producer says that the government’s planned US$116bn infrastructure spend would insure a medium-term increase in cement demand. It gave as an example the Western Sydney Aerotropolis, which will require 500,000m3 of concrete. The company currently derives 45% of sales from non-residential construction.
